New demo: a text-mode RPN calculator built up from machine code

archive.org/details/akkartik-2

Inspirations:
* LoGlo (loglo.app/2020-06-16)
* Brief (youtube.com/watch?v=R3MNcA2dpt)

Unlike these, however, this version tries to hew to two principles:
* Show all the data (following spreadsheets and Joshua Horowitz; joshuahhh.com/projects/pane)
* Minimize interaction (following Bret Victor; worrydream.com/MagicInk)

@akkartik This looks like such a cool project!

Tangent but I really like akkartik.name/post/readable-ba

@alcinnz you might like reading the above, too! I feel like it goes head-on into some issues both of us have expressed.

@emsenn @akkartik I have studied Mu before, and I'm looking into the calculator now!

@alcinnz Sorry, to be clear I meant specifically the piece I linked on readability. @akkartik

@emsenn @akkartik Ah yes, the importance of communicating & maintaining software architecture! That *does* need more advocacy!
